  • This museum has some outstanding exhibits on Las Vegas and the surrounding area. I really enjoyed learning about Las Vegas in the early years and all the history. This place is worth a visit.

  • Nice Museum. The staff was friendly and inviting. Lots of stuff to look at inside and out. It's was only $2 each too. So great if your looking for something inexpensive and educational to do. The only thing that would have been super helpful was if their was better signage on the main road. The driveway came up fast and we ended up having to turn around and come back cause we passed it.
  • This is a must go and visit museum, It is absolutely perfect for the entire family even the little ones will find something interesting here. They have both indoor and outdoor Exhibits. So the best thing is to go is 1st thing in the morning when they open and plan on staying around 2 hours. Unless the weather is around the 70's and 80゚ than any time would be fine. You will want to wear good walking shoes and you can leave your food and drink in the vehicle if you get Hungry or thirsty because It is not allowed in the museum.
  • Huge. Originally thought it was going to be like 4 houses and an admin building. Nope. 34 acres, with wonderfully friendly staff and a lot to see. My 9 yr old enjoyed it immensely and there's a scavenger hunt for the kids they can do (it's huge but it doesn't have to be completed, and is sectioned based on the areas the museum has). The houses on property are kept to historical accuracy (with the accepting of air conditioning thank goodness) and theres hundreds of little details added everywhere. And for the low price, it's absolutely worth the time, price and effort to go see.
  • What a hidden gem! So much care and attention has been put in to this museum. Loved the houses out of time and adored being able to see the chapel where my parents were married. Best $2 I've ever spent!
  • Truly a hidden gem for anyone who is visiting Las Vegas Nevada! The amazing part about this museum is there is a full street of houses from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s that were taken apart board by board and rebuilt in this setting that recreates and gives you a step back in time. Inside the houses, you can tour each home from a different time period. They have everything from household products to tools and appliances, that a typical homeowner would have used in decade. If you want to step back in time and see some of the things that you may remember from your youth. This is a must see! You can’t beat the admission price of two bucks! Clark county museum is not that far outside of the traditional Las Vegas attractions, and well worth the stop.
